It seems that Nintendo’s breakthrough system, the 3DS, is going to be hazardous to children under the age of six. Nintendo’s website provides a warning:
“Vision of children under the age of 6 (is in) the developmental stage. The Nintendo 3DS, including 3-D movies and television, delivers 3-D images with different left and right eye images,” which “has a potential impact on the growth of children’s eyes.”
Apparently, Nintendo also provides a warning for all gamers, stating that users should take breaks every 30 minutes or when they feel sick. The 3DS is also going to come with a slider used to tone the level of depth of the 3D images so it can be decreased or even reduced to 2D for those whose eyes can’t handle the intensity of 3D. It will also come with a parental safety setting which can force the system into 2D mode so it will be safer for younger gamers.
Seems like Nintendo’s thought this system out. Still can’t wait to see the 3DS itself come out!
